DrvFS support for "Shared Folders" in Virtual Machines

DrvFS is unable to access the "shared folders" of a host machine when running inside a VM like VMware.

We often use VMs for testing and shared folders are a great way to move data between the host and different VMs.

For details see https://github.com/Microsoft/BashOnWindows/issues/1959 and https://github.com/Microsoft/BashOnWindows/issues/1954

        This feature would make a big difference to my work. I would like to move completely to Bash/WSL. Right now I switch around from Bash/WSL to cygwin to mingw. Much prefer Bash/WSL but without this feature it is not fully functional for me.
